The entry of our Lincoln Park Greek Revival home is custom fabricated with solid cherry wood, glass sidelights and a transom. Finished with a product similar to what is used on boats, it guards against the toughest Chicago winters. Its thickness and traditional paneling gives the door a very substantial old-world feel, reflecting the classic nature of the home.
The portico columns are custom, hand-carved, Indiana Oolitic limestone designed in the Composite Order. They incorporate Corinthian leaves with Ionic volutes. The front façade features limestone detailing which was hand-carved and cut specifically for this home.
As with all of our homes, the windows in this project are custom. Although the stained wood on these front facade windows requires a bit more maintenance, the look is undeniably beautiful. A finishing detail- the home was completed with a custom wrought iron fence.
